New Year resolutions are great, but are often lost in the hustle and bustle of life. However, consider family-friendly resolutions that will leave a lasting impression! The team at Gray Eittreim Martin has put together a list of ways you can strengthen your family ties in 2018.
Discover four family-friendly resolutions that can strengthen your family and marriage:
There are countless non-profit organizations that are seeking to help others in the community. On your family’s free day, volunteer with an organization that needs your help! By doing this, you are showing your kids that you can give the gift of time all year long.
Plan More Family Experiences
Gifts are great, but having family outings can leave lasting impressions. This month, sit down with your spouse and plan family outings for the whole year. They can take you out of state or they can take you right up the road! In the years to come, your family members will love reminiscing on the new sights and experiences that they had together.
Have Weekly Family Dinners
No matter how old your kids are, having a weekly family dinner around the kitchen table will benefit everyone. The entire family will enjoy a homemade meal and catch up with each other. Set some rules to limit the distractions such as no technology use and keeping the television turned off. This resolution will result in closer family bonds and learning more about your family’s daily activities.
Write a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement
This resolution may surprise you. However, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are often misunderstood. Creating these agreements doesn’t always mean you’re preparing for divorce. On the contrary, you are taking potential stress and worry away from your marriage! If you’re about to get married or are already married, allow us to sit down with you and your spouse and create this stress-relieving document.
